The fault could be -
The yellow cartridge is empty
or
The yellow ink nozzles are blocked
Because green is made up with blue and yellow colors.

Testimonial: "Fantastic!! I bought cheap ink cartridges, the yellow still had its' port covered with plastic even after removing a foil cover. Thanks much."

Tip

How to unclog a clogged print head on the Canon...


Using a cotton swap dip into some plain water and then drop a few drops of water onto the outlet of the ink cartridge [you will have to remove the ink cartridge and turn it upside down].

Also while the ink cartridge is still removed, drop a few drops of water onto the inlet orifice into which the ink goes. The orifice of the ink cartridge sits right on top of the inlet to the print head when the ink cartridge is fully installed.

After putting the water drops onto the ink cartridge and onto the inlet orifice of the print head, I did the 'clean' procedure as listed in the "Canon PIXMA iP4000 Properties" of the program on my PC. Then I did the deep clean procedure. After that I printed the print pattern and found that this technique worked quite well -- since before I had tried isopropyl alcohol which didn't work to unclogged these print heads.

When I had the blue print head get clogged [on my Canon iP4000 Pixma printer] and I tried this method. It worked immediately.

I hope it works for you too.

God be with you!

Cannon IP4000 PIXMA - pink & green streaks


I've had the same problem with my ip4000, but the solution was to get a new print head. They can be quite costly, so I recommend the following:

1. Contact Cannon support and see if you can get them to send you a replacement. They sent me one free of charge, and didn't need an RMA for the old one, so it was hassle free.
2. You can always try to aggressively clean the head yourself by removing it and following some of the "home brew" procedures others have tried. However, you can damage the head further this way and it's only a last resort. Warm distilled water and a syringe was used by one person. When I tried this, it did not work at all, and I called Canon for the replacement anyway.

Printing text


What program are you printing from? I noticed that sometimes IE7 will print screen content the way you described. The only work-around I have is to copy and paste the content to Word (or other word processor), and format it accordingly.
